Interchangeability of Top Cases

Are the top cases on A1212/A1229/A1261 Macbook Pros interchangeable? I have an A1212 with non-working keyboard and trackpad from a spill. The rest of the internals of the machine seem to be fine; it functions flawlessly with an external keyboard and mouse, both USB and wireless. Will any of the non-unibody 17" Macbook Pro top cases function in the A1212, or do I need a top case from an identical model?
